Count my blessings same way I count the stars
I look up and wonder how many there are
Just like everything gets lost between the lines
You read the book and put it down
Before it smacks you right between the eyes

In spite of it all, what can I even say?
There's nothing I can do for you yesterday
Damn it all, everybody says
There's nothing we can do for you yesterday

When you burn bright you burn fast as a shooting star
Gone from sight, the one everybody's glad they aren't
Expectations ain't good for much at all
They'll get you up there
But they don't catch you when you fall


Burn so bright
You burn so bright
Shoot it up so high
Burned so bright
You burned so bright in spite of it all

    Written about the deep regret Jeremy felt over one of his childhood friends who slipped off the edge of society due to psychological and drug problems. “Writing ‘Shooting Star (In Spite Of It All)’ helped me accept that it happened and understand that beating myself up for something I didn’t do is not going to help the situation.”
